Canada’s new oldest unfound cache now also found!


You may remember that just over a year ago, this blog was very interested in the 8 day canoe trip by Stormgren X and his non-Geocaching partner to find the World’s (and obviously Canada’s) oldest unfound cache. We did 3 blog posts on it, and mentioned it in a fourth. When that cache was found, another cache obviously took it’s place as Canada’s oldest unfound cache. That would be a virtual cache, SK Extreme 01, on an Island in a Lake in remote Northern Saskatchewan. Placed on July 17, 2002, SK Extreme 01 requires you to “find” a  Canadian Topographical Survey benchmark on this unnamed Island in Brabant Lake. On June 19th, a party of 4 cachers (pictured above with usernames) claimed the FTF on this cache!
